Praying with Paul: 'Nothing between God and Me'

1 Corinthians 10:14-22

Dear Father,

Never let an idol stand between me and you. I am not stronger than you. I don't want to provoke you to jealousy.

Help me to understand that while "all things are lawful," all things are not helpful.

Let everything I do, whether working or resting, eating or drinking, be done for your glory.

May I never worship myself, live for myself, or strive to please myself. I want to worship you, to live for you, to please you.

In the name of Jesus and in reliance upon his example I ask this. Amen.
